Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
15/9/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults on the upcoming Sunday's principle Gospel reading so that all can better prepare for the Divine Services. Parents are asked to review the childrens portion with their children. It is very important for us to attend the Divine Services on Sundays and whenever else we are able, but in addition it is our spiritual responsibility to educate ourselves and our families in the faith. It is our hope that this mid-week offering will be an aid in this regard. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or suggestions.

For Adults: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

For Youth: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Not to despise the favor of any of your neighbors is humility; it ought to be accepted with thanksgiving even if it is small and of little moment.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
12/9/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: II Corinthians 8:7-15 & Mark 3:6-12
Tuesday: II Corinthians 8:16-9:5 & Mark 3:13-19
Wednesday: II Corinthians 9:12-10:7 & Mark 3:20-27
Thursday: II Corinthians 10:7-18 & Mark 3:28-35
Friday: II Corinthians 11:5-21 & Mark 4:1-9
Saturday: I Corinthians 2:6-9 & Matthew 22:15-22

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.
